Geospatial data refers to any data that represents a location on earth. A traditional relational database model might associate a café with a park using a relational table. What if instead you could store the coordinates of the café along with the coordinates and shape of the park and use geospatial logic to determine their relationship?

In this episode of the EF Core Community Standup, the team talks with Joe Amenta who demos the spatial (GIS) library NetTopologySuite and shows how to use EF Core with SQL to add a new dimension to your app.

You can find the links that were discussed in the show at:
